WHOLE SCHOOL DANCE


‘We posted live challenges’


SOCK BALL CHALLENGE


Victoria Foden from Thorn Grove Primary School PTA in Bishop’s Stortford organised a virtual summer fair in June, after realising that the school’s usual seasonal fundraiser wouldn’t take place... ‘After seeing what some other organisations were doing using Zoom and Facebook Live, I felt we could do something fair-related online, with the aim of breaking up the monotony of lockdown life, while raising funds for the school. It started with the idea of


everyone learning a whole-school dance at home, which would normally have been performed at the summer fair. Parents sent in video clips of the children dancing, and I compiled them into one video, which was then used to “open” the fair, along with an introduction from our head, Mr Luck. The event was run across Twitter,

Facebook and Zoom, and was publicised beforehand with a timetable of events sent out to parents via the school and posted on social media. The joining information for the Zoom element of the fair was only sent to school parents, for privacy reasons. A week prior to the event opening,


we promoted an online football scratch card game on Facebook and Twitter. Families could choose a football team from a grid, and the

winning team was revealed at the end of the fair. During the two-hour fair, which ran on a Saturday afternoon, challenges or games were posted every ten minutes. On Facebook, these games


included: a bucket flip challenge, which people could do at home then post their scores on the thread; guess the sweets in the jar, with a picture of the sweet-filled jar posted for comment; a colour dress-up challenge, which challenged families to dress in a colour theme, and a scavenger hunt, listing items for family teams to find around their home. Over on Zoom, we had interactive “spin the wheel” and “Play Your Cards Right” games. Our online Disney quiz was


introduced by “Princess Ariel”, a local party entertainer, and the magician we had originally booked for the fair, “Devilstick Pete”, recorded a 20-minute magic video, which we posted towards the end of the event. Once all the challenges and attractions had finished, we announced winners on Facebook Live, and delivered prizes to people’s doorsteps. Throughout the event, we


encouraged people to donate to our Localgiving (localgiving.org) page, and were overwhelmed to have raised a total of £725, which far exceeded our expectations.’
